About Fertility

Facing infertility, or any medical concern, can be daunting and emotionally taxing. Countless questions, worries, and fears may occupy your mind. However, thanks to the fertility treatments available today, more women and men than ever are realizing their dream of having a child. By visiting myfertility.ca, you are taking an important step toward educating yourself and shedding some light on a complicated issue. There is plenty to learn about male and female fertility as you work toward your goal of having a child, so it is important to start information gathering sooner rather than later.

Infertility is a medical condition defined as the inability to become pregnant after one year of unprotected intercourse. Many people are surprised to learn that infertility affects 8% to 16% of reproductive age couples (up to 1 in 6 couples are infertile). It may be helpful to know that you are not alone in this experience and in your quest for answers about infertility.

Treatment of infertility depends on the cause, how long you've been infertile, the age of the partners, and many personal preferences. Some causes of infertility can't be corrected. However, a couple can still achieve pregnancy with medications, surgeries, assisted reproductive technologies (ART), or other fertility treatments.

Fortunately, in many cases there are treatments available for infertility. Many cases are treated with medical therapies such as fertility drugs or surgery, without the need for in vitro fertilization (IVF).

There is a lot of information to process and it probably won’t happen all at once. This section of myfertility.ca gives you a solid foundation as you move forward in your quest for fertility information, from understanding the reproductive process to learning what factors affect your fertility.
